Derbyshire Police Federation

Spring magazine out now

27 March 2024

The spring edition of News and Views, the Derbyshire Police Federation magazine, is available now to download.

We shine the spotlight on post-incident procedures (PIP) and the steps involved.

“I want to dispel the myths surrounding post-incident procedures and reassure officers that the process is in place to protect them, not because they’ve done anything wrong,” says Detective Chief Inspector Gareth Eaton.

Branch chair Tony Wetton welcomes the introduction of the new Elizabeth Emblem to officially recognise the sacrifice of fallen officers.

Meet branch CAPLO and wellbeing lead Helen Gallear as she discusses how she hopes to improve mental health in the workplace for members.

Deputy Chief Constable Simon Blatchly OBE discusses his 35 years in policing and his visions for the Force.



There’s a focus on the value of keeping in touch days as a Federation member encourages officers on parental leave to take advantage of them.

Meanwhile, a new Force-wide initiative to give new mums a post-birth physical health check receives praise from branch secretary Kirsty Bunn.

Kirsty also gives the Federation’s backing to a campaign for an allocation of funds seized under the Proceeds of Crime Act to go towards supporting officers with injuries and conditions sustained in policing.

We meet the Special Constable who was inspired to join Derbyshire Police Cadets as a 12-year-old by watching police programmes.

Hear from the Federation member who was given more confidence about retiring after taking part in a pre-retirement seminar organised by the branch.

It’s all in the spring edition of News and Views which is available online now. Read the magazine online today.
